Wine – Beer – Cider – Spirits

There are so many fantastic wines in the Finger Lakes and so little time to enjoy them all.  Our wine down philosophy is put into practice sipping of the Finger Lakes varietals from the Seneca and Cayuga Lake Wine Trails. We enjoy helping you plan your tasting itinerary. We will gladly snail mail you maps and information prior to your arrival.  In our resource center, you will find brochures and free tasting coupons and discounts.  Check out our Facebook page for upcoming winery events.

  • Hard Cider

    The Finger Lakes are a perfect place for the blossoming Cider Industry.  There is an abundance of apple orchards such as Wickham’s which is a u-pick orchard in Hector.  You will find stand alone Cideries as well as a place for cider tasting in many of the Brewing Companies and Wineries. The farm to bottle philosophy is exemplified by these closest to us.

    • Blackduck Cidery – 3046 County Road 138  Ovid, NY. This is a family orchard that produces not only cider but Perry in small batches with minimal manipulation using ambient yeast fermentation.
    • Finger Lakes Cider House – 4017 Hickok Road, Interlaken, NY. The Good Life Farm features their own Good Life Cider as well as amazing ciders from Black Diamond Cider , Eve’s Cidery, Redbyrd Orchard Cider and South Hill Cider.

  • Distilling

    There are two Distillers very close to Tillinghast Manor. We have frequented both and purchased their Bourbon and Gin.

  • What’s Wine Without Cheese?

    The Finger Lakes Cheese Trail – If you are the designated driver, then stopping at some Creameries can be your reward. They are working family farms and are creating a variety of artisanal cheeses. We can also do a special cheese basket for you to enjoy. The two closest are:

    • Muranda Cheese Company at 3075 State Rte 96 South in Waterloo which is open 7 days a week year around.
    • Livley Run Goat Dairy is only open seasonly from May to October. You can take the farm tour at 2pm Monday to Saturday.  They are located at 8979 County Rd 142 Interlaken.

    We also use their products in many of our brunch recipes.
